With almost 90 photographs on display, the Seduced by Art photography exhibition at National Gallery explores the connections between photos and traditional art. The groundbreaking photography exhibition at The National Gallery is the acclaimed institution's first major exhibition celebrating and exploring the depths of photography. This spectacular show explores the relationship between historical paintings, the early photography of the mid nineteenth century and the innovative work of contemporary photographers today in one of the gallery's major exhibitions of the autumn.

The Seduced by Art photography exhibition at National Gallery is focusing on how the field has claimed the traditions of so-called high art as its own. From very early on, photographers have worked with the established genres of historical painting, ranging from portraiture, still life and landscape, and appropriated them for their own creative ends. For many visitors, the highlight of the Seduced by Art photography exhibition at National Gallery is the large central room, but the thematic grouping of exhibits in the show gives visitors the chance to compare and contrast similar works that were completed in different eras and where different mediums were used.

The exhibition will also explore photographs which will push technological boundaries, such as Sam Taylor-Wood's time-based Still Life of 2001, and Ori Gersht's digital still life. In addition, the show will  feature many specially commissioned photography and video works, as well as many on public show for the first time. The Seduced by Art photography exhibition at National Gallery takes place from Wednesday 31st October 2012 - Sunday 20th January 2013 so make sure you don’t miss this spectacular event!
